So I was away the past few days in Montreal where I went to the UFC fight of Georges St-Pierre vs. Koscheck. While the undercards were somewhat weak, the main event was an awesome spectacle of GSP just dismantling Koscheck with left jabs. After Round 1 he had his eye almost fully swollen shut. Clearly GSP, not known for his striking, had a gameplan and masterfully executed it.
I'd say you need to do the same thing in poker. You should have a solid gameplan versus the various types of players. You should be hammering hard against the nits and forcing them to fold all but their monsters. Conversely against the calling stations you should be going to valuetown as much as possible. Knowing your opponent and how to exploit him is more than half the battle.
I'm going to be making a new video series myself over the next few weeks covering some of the themes that have been discussed in the forums/blogs lately. I'm really happy with how the site is going lately and am hoping to take it to the next level. We're going to be making a more structured training approach for Sit-n-go's and MTT's as well, similar to how we've laid out our Cash game series. There's no reason why every single member here shouldn't be crushing the micro-stakes, and we're going to do whatever we can to get you there.
Happy holidays and good luck at the tables!
